governor romney and a lot of red states, there is a possibility of one candidate, probably rendezvous' anymore popular votes and greeted romney winning popular votes and obama winning electoral votes. democrats are going to immediately say we have been here before. al gore got more votes in 2000, and president bush became president. there will be a cry, but that is the nature of what we have. tavis: the only response would be that the rule is simple. he to get 270 wins. that would be the order of the day, but for all the talk about the closeness of the reyes said you and i just engaged in and every other american seems to be engaged in, -- closed as of the race you and i have been engaged in and every other american seems to be engaged in, i have not seen one poll that shows mr. romney is anywhere near 270. >> therein lies the challenge for governor romney. these polls show him doing well. there are more paths for president obama. governor romney has got a lock in florida. that has not happened 100%. i think governor romney has more to look for the reagan romney again has to win virgi
the damaged parts of your state with someone who can help you. walking around with mitt romney would just be a photo op but allowing the president of the united states to tour the devastated areas of new jersey would allow the president to know where resources need to be placed. chris christie is being governor as president obama is being president in chief, not a campaigner. there's no margin for christie to play party politics. he needs to get the job done as governor because as steve says, his job will be judged by how he handle this is hurricane. >> steve, how do you think the romney camp views this, who does need this and some other margins between now and next tuesday? >> no, they're at cross-purposes here. christie is about -- right now he's imperative to appeal to blue state voters and the romney imperative is to sort of make obama look bad and win over swing state voters. it's another example. we've seen it a few times this year with christie actually, the same dynamic. i can think back earlier when romney was trying to stone wall on taxes, and christie was put on national televi
to go to new jersey and that's not considered campaign. there's a safe state. romney did a noncampaign event, so it compacts and they have to be more judicious on how they are going to spend the rest of their time and it gives the president to act like a president and what governor romney did not want was a president doing what he is supposed to do and he attacking the office. >> so is it back to the economy as we go to the end of the week? >> well, that's right. i was told in tampa that will be the deciding factor and that's what romnthink will elect him. >> there's some talk. could they move election day because of what happened on the east coast? >> let me clarify this since 1845 the election date is the first tuesday in november. after the harvest and before winter. there has to be a federal law and they would have to come back and change the election date. what can happen is that the counties can extend voting hours and start earlier or close later and make adjustments like that but tuesday november 6 is election day and about a third of the people would have voted before election
-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or atlantic city, if you had to count on who? name it. some -- some security firm, blackwell. or something. halliburton. >> there are pictures of firefighters in water up to their chests wading through streets of new york and parks to get to people who help them. they were fighting fires in the middle of a hurricane. they were dealing with buildings that had collapsed in the middle of a hurricane. >> bill: you look at the first responders rescuing those people in the hms bounty that went down. can you imagine halliburton doing it? we took the day off. >> exactly. >> bill: because it's raining. arnold, our rowing ambassador down in greensboro, north carolina. what do you say? >> good morning bill. i'm happy to talk about that. where that storm landed, they shouldn't call
to designate the electors however they want. the electors for obama or for romney, but if a state wanted to the legislature could choose the electorate rather than having election. they would be voted out of office but they could do it. with those premises in place, the question is, can a state delay an election? yes but not for president. federal law has said you must choose your electors on the first monday after the first tuesday of november. this year, november 6. so the state of new jersey, where we live, for example, could delay congressional elections by a month because they felt candidates could not campaign because of the hurricane but it could not delay the presidential election since that is the date set by congress. so, we have to hold it on that date or hold a substitute for it, like a vote if the legislature on that date. >>neil: what is the likely hood that 20 states, says were affected by the storm in one way, shape or form, not that the entire state is affected by power outages and it is mostly in new jersey or connecticut or the other states is there anything the federa
on the margin that helps the romney campaign in state of pennsylvania. >> bret: let me push back. it hurts because things are amiss in america? >> i would no sense suggesting that people are going to rationally conclude obama is responsible for the hurricane. of course not. but if you looking at a candidate, incumbent and ask am i happy with the state of the country right now, possible on the margins to effect the tiny group of undecided voters at this stage, you know, the fact there is a hurricane and ugly pictures on television add to the cumulative effect that america is not going in right direction. >> response and how it, the response has gone arguably you had new jersey governor chris christie who said the president has done very well. it's gone smooth. most of the response is handleed by the governors. state-by-state. but it does require some federal assistance. coordination on the federal level. he said the president is to be mended. the president is going to new jersey tomorrow. chuck? >> i would perhaps agree with tucker if it were in some way clear that president obama had misha
that governor romney's momentum jumped containment from the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states that chicago never anticipated defending. paul ryan was in his home state of wisconsin to encourage relief efforts of campaign victory offices. the native son popularity helped him surge in 2.3 points of the president in real clear politics average of recent wisconsin polls. thursday he will visit virginia where the top ally is dealing with the clean-up. >> we are issuing a letter today to all the voting registrar office around the state. asking them to stay open for up to eight additional hours to make up for the time. that a citizen may not have had to vote absentee. over the last two days. >> i don't think the damage has been massive. not in virginia it appears. especially northern virginia. not necessarily in new hampshire. so, we're not looking at swing states, sustaining the damage. >> devastation hasn't completely disrupted the campaign. advertisements continue and endorsements continue. today, romney picked up support of former chrysler cio and hal sperling, saying he is the r
the upper hand in key swing states. in florida, a cnn/orc poll has romney up by just one point well within the margin of error. and in north carolina, where democrats held their convention last month, a university poll has it even 45% to 45%. >> mark haleprin, can't get much closer everywhere. >> i mean -- >> and minnesota, minnesota is not even a key swing state. you've got bill clinton going in because a new poll shows mitt romney within the margin of error in minnesota. plus, you have some information about some space where the republicans are about to start rushing in and putting up campaign ads that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you are, we're going to go into election day not knowing who is going to win this. the race is simply too close, too many variables and the storm has a lot of new ones. we just can focus on what we see. one thing we see is democrats are playing a little bit more definition than they thought they would. and if you bring
romney. 43% said obama. the election is decided by the number of electoral votes allotted to each state. there are 538 votes in the electoral college. abc news estimates obama is likely to win 217 of them, romney, 191. >>> syrian military commanders say they'll abide by a cease-fire during a muslim holiday over the weekend, but government and opposition forces have shown little sign of letting up in their fighting. >> united nations and arab league envoy organized the tuesday for the festival. government and opposition forces agree to lay down their arms from friday through monday. they agree to lay down arms from friday through monday, but arm commanders say they reserve the right to retaliate against rebel attacks. the head of the opposition forces military council says he's skeptical that government forces will stick to their word. >> the two sides kept up the fighting. several place as head of the truce. government forces are said to have reinforcements. neither side respected a cease-fire in april. buddhists and muslims in western myanmar have taken up their fight against. at least
for the middle piece of ohio. if romney doesn't win ohio, gets iowa, wisconsin becomes the in play state. >> eric: wisconsin and you need to win two other states. >> bob: i'm giving him right now florida, north carolina, and virginia. >> eric: because he's lea leading. >> kimberly: you think it's better than the margin of error? >> bob: i get a sense they're falling back. he still needs to win -- without ohio he needs to win at least three states that obama won. iowa, wisconsin, colorado and -- >> eric: that's it. >> dana: some places you don't have papers anymore. in colorado "rocky mountain news" has shuttered. that was a paper that typically would endorse a republican. >> bob: new hampshire is the other one. >> dana: in some places i don't know if papers matter much but des moines was big. i admit it, i was wrong. i thought that the "register" telegraphs that they were going to endorse obama regardless. >> kimberly: october surprise. >> dana: i was wrong. >> bob: they got mad when they were told what to do. what was on the record and off the record. in the editorial. >> kimberly: frustrated. >
obama state. so they're having to shore up in minnesota and pennsylvania. where romney has put additional resources in, because last week he said bob, watch where the money goes. that's where the money is going from both campaigns, does it mean they're more up for grabs? >> bob: romney spread out the electoral map no question about it. if obama were to lose minnesota, it would be a landslide for romney. they have to send him in to shore things up. he will get to colorado where he needs to be. what romney, though, is missing here is a lot of campaign events in ohio, which he desperately needs. >> dana: that's where he was today. >> bob: but he was doing fundraising there. which is fine. but he needs to do the rallies and other things. anytime you freeze something, it doesn't actually mean you come back to where it was when you froze it. >> eric: no, but it doesn't mean the momentum changes back. face it, president obama has had the best success at changing the polling. when he goes negative. when his negative ads about romney for bain capital. >> kimberly: that's when he was ahe
romney and paul ryan canceled events scheduled in wisconsin today and tomorrow. president obama's campaign event that was scheduled for tomorrow in green bay is also on hold in the badger state. and it's ten electoral votes are critical to mitt romney's hope to unseat president obama especially if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very e
in a battleground state today with governor romney but didn't hold a campaign event per se with the relief event that they hold. again, being in ohio obviously has a campaign aspect to it. he's resuming campaigning tomorrow and has a full schedule in florida tomorrow. president plans to tour the disaster areas in new jersey with governor christie tomorrow afternoon, and then i think with that -- there had been some question it was my understanding they were working on this planning. the question was whether new jersey would be ready to receive the security entourage that comes with the president tomorrow or wait until nurse? the fact they're doing it tomorrow indicates the presid t president's campaign schedule is likely to resume thursday. >> anyone that predicted romney would campaign is right. >> more on that later, toure. lower manhattan saw a record storm system last night. a picture is worth a thousand words. this tells that story. we had the last high tide of potential concern earlier today. where is the water right now? >> reporter: well, steve, right now the water level is from this po
for more of our updates. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney hav cancelled their campaign appearances. obama returned to the white house after calling off a campaign stop in the u.s. state of florida just three hours before it was to start. earlier he san selled events in virginia and ohio. obama said he's not worried that the hurricane will affect the election next tuesday. former president bill clinton was in orlando, florida to rally support. clinton said obama is the best choice for president. romney cancelled vents in on monday. he issued a statement calling on people to come together across the country and focus on giving support to those who need it. the two states are not in sandy's path but observers say romney did not want to appear to be koe kusing on the campaign in the midst of a potential national disaster. >>> u.n. and arab league envoy says the truce he brokered in syria for a holiday period has collapsed. syria's government and opposition forces agreed to stop all attacks which started last friday. the fighting has continued leaving many people dead. the h

called arg shows mitt romney up there as well. that's the state of the race. couldn't be tighter. if there isn't much more campaigning to be done over the next few days that's where the states will essentially stand. and this campaign was put on a forced indefinite hiatus as both sides were starting to make their closing arguments. on the democratic side here's what's going to end up being the closing argument for the obama campaign. this ad is reportedly set to run in florida, iowa, ohio and virginia. in here, it's just you. no adtion, no debates, just you. so think about this -- mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare, voucher. catastrophic cuts to education, millionaires who get one of the largest tax cuts ever, while middle-class families pay more. that's what mitt romney wants to bring more. remember that when you go here -- >> i'm barack obama and i approved this message. >> no more ads and no more debates. it's up to you. on the republican side, here's the closing argument being made by mitt romney in the crucial swing stat
states should be in charge of emergency management and responding. that is from the romney campaign yesterday. so, we are turning to you to get your take. what is your trust level in the government during natural disasters? lew is in new york an independent. what is it like up there for you? caller: we are going through there crazy storm. i think the bureacratic system is definitely going to catch off guard until something is done about t. my trust in government at this point? if romney were to get in and that mindset of dissolving governme government, then when you have katrina and you have the storm we get the kind of response we got then and a lot of people suffering and basically on our own. that is the scary part. all back to the fact that it will get worse and worse over time and more and more heated that you have heard the thought that it is time to act and do something and you can't count on government to save you. i live in new york and they could not help many people. 60 houses burned to the ground because how could you respond in three feet of water? host: are you referri
romney canceled campaign events in the key states of virginia and new hampshire. darren gersh tonight looks at the impact with election day one week away. >> reporter: both campaigns say they have stopped fundraising and campaigning in states in sandy's path. governor romney was still looking for votes today in ohio, iowa and wisconsin, but his campaign says he will stay away from the key swing states of virginia and new hampshire to let emergency workers there focus on the storm. both candidates say this is a time for the nation to come together. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families, and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> i would like to ask you who are here today to think about making a contribution to the red cross or another relief agency, to be of help if you possibly can in any way you can imagine to help those in harm's way. >> reporter: not only has sandy charted an expe
. when the second disaster happened, romney and the state had money sitting in the until because people were evacuated. he refused to spend the state's money even though they had a surplus because he wanted to know what the federal government was going to give him first. he didn't think it was a moral hazard to wait for the federal government to write a check before he spent massachusetts's own money and he wound up refusing to help families in lower massachusetts who were really hurting and he refused to spend the state's money to help them. so what is the actual moral hazard here? >> steve, if it was at least a month left in the campaign i have no doubt team obama would have an ad out, at least a week or two from now, with this fema response, including disaster relief. everything would be in that ad. and but now with the election coming on tuesday, it's difficult to see how team obama cuts that ad and gets it out there in a way people don't think are overly exploiting the situation. >> my guess is they wouldn't touch that from here to the election. if you look at the politics of this

, bringing on romney as president of the united states will be more devastating than the full wrath of mother nature. >> yeah, but clinton can do that, he can be the attack dog and pit bull and do those things, but romney and obama can't say those things. >> i agree. clinton is going to be who he is. joe biden can't go out there and do it, he's the acting, now current vice-president, but bill clinton can play the fear game. this problem is the institutional left. they are looking at an election swinging tornadwards romney. charles: bill clinton is considered. >> considered a moderate. he only did what he had to do in office, to stay in office.
